Being vegetarian, I’m always looking for a great restaurant when I travel. After getting rave reviews from locals (veg and non-veg alike), I decided to make the hike to the Capitol Hill area. The restaurant has a cozy/rustic atmosphere with dim lighting and small tables. However, there was one booth and it appears they can cater to larger groups because... More

We found this place because we discovered a book with recipes bases on this cafe, so we thought (rightfully as it turned out) that there must be something to it. Located within in a loft building in the heart of Seattle, the Plum offers lovely meals for reasonable prices and an interesting assortment of Vegan beer on top. The service... More

We stopped at Plum Cafe in Capitol Hill for a late lunch before heading back to Portland from Victoria over Canada Day weekend. My daughter, who is vegan, picked out Plum. My wife and I had shared some chowder earlier at Pike Place Chowder, so we split an order of rosemary fries and a salad. The rosemary fries were very... More

Stopped in spontaneously last Saturday around 6pm, looked very inviting , all tables were full we opted to sit near the bar on a couple of stools. Our server was also the bartender who greeter us promptly and was super friendly. After that it was very hard to get her attention as she was busy at the bar and the... More

We ordered a bunch of different stuff and it all was pretty delicious. But what really stood out to me was the pasta. It was cooked to perfection. I haven't had pasta cooked so well since I got to the States a year ago. Amazing!

I am not a vegan, but my son and his girlfriend are becoming vegans so they suggested Plum Vegan Bistro. I was surprised, the Buffalo Portobello burger was very tasty. If you are meat eater I would tell you to give this place a try.

Plum makes some of the best pancakes and french toast around and when it comes time for lunch and dinner they get better. What they don't do is create a bunch of food that simulates meat. C'mon, this is a vegan place, if you are there then you should embrace the veggies! Service is a bit slow, at times, but... More

Let me start by saying that I'm not vegan. I've eaten here twice, once for dinner, once for brunch. Both times had their mac and cheese, which just rules my little part of the planet. Also had a skillet dish during the brunch which was very tasty, and the Mama Africa salad, which could have used a little something extra... More

We planned a trek to Plum for my first birthday as a vegan. We got there early, but the small dining space was packed. The atmosphere at 6PM was loud and the space is quite closely filled with tables and diners. Not the ambience I was seeking. The drinks were delicious and I particularly enjoyed something called a "Red Field,"... More
